I'm unfamiliar with 360 they have a paid ver. im sure? any I guess.
No paid version, all are free and fully functional, no restrictions.
Do feel free to check out each one of them and decide what rings your bells
Now, gentlemen, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to watch Singham while I prepare for, yet again, rewatch of Star Trek.
See you all in 2024...
How many people do you think use outbound filtering? 1%? 0.01%? For a vast majority of people, there is no need. Just use a good AV instead.
Any time I have used a program that does outbound filtering, 99% of the alerts are false positives.
BTW - Do you realize a lot of internet security programs that includes "a firewall", it is really just a front end for windows firewall, with maybe some config tweaks?
Most of the people who understand how a firewall works use a both way firewall; to use a firewall with only inbound protection s similar with using a router and ads ZERO value.
No "a lot" of security programs use Windows firewall, in fact most of them have a dedicated inbound outbound firewall.
For Win 7 I use PC Tools Firewall Plus with excellent results.
Any firewall alerts I have seen in the past 5+ years are been FPs, and more of an annoyance than anything else.
Given a choice, I always choose the AV version of a program over an IS version that includes a firewall and other non-essentials(parental control, spam filter, cookie cleaner, etc..).
I could understand an AV expert, who's really trying to look down their system, wanting a firewall with outbound protection. I suspect most normal users don't want the extra prompts, and just click "allow" anyway.
Is there just a AV version of the newest one?
I agree, for years I've used look'n'Stop firewall because of its outbound filtering without ever seeing any benefit. I stopped using it with Vista and Win8, as the firewall had been improved compared to the XP version. I'm also quite certain that for Vista, Win7-8, the firewall can be configured for outbound filtering, although it's not a straight forward operation, it requires some guidance.
It requires more than "guidance" , it requires in fact another program , like "Binisoft" for example, which will block all outbound connections and let you "unblock ,one by one. Is a pain in the ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ to use it , so I reverted to PC Tools Firewall Plus 126.96.36.199.
I never had ONE false positive or one alert which I couldn't understand.
In fact I went through a lot of secutity suites with firewall or only firewalls, but PC Tools proved to be the best one.
On second place Comodo firewall 5.10 or 5.12
360 Internet Security v5 which was relased on the 12 of January is working on Windows 10 Technical Preview - unlike previous releases, even though Windows 10 isn't officially supported yet.
Same here, only the webcam protection isn't working, but I had that same issue with Total Security. Does anybody know where to get the Google chrome extension to enable web and downloaded file scanning?
Where else ... then in the webstore.
I found that extension, but it says: "You need to install latest 360 Total Security to have the above functions." Does this extension also work for 360 Internet Security?
No, is not working. I just tried few bad pages with the extension installed (latest Chrome/360 Internet Security) and it didn't work.
To be honest I do not know if it will work with 360 Internet Security, simply because I have never tried 360 IS? ( Because of your previous post I thought you where using 360 Total Security. )
EDIT: Well PaulBB answered your question.
Thank you both I really prefer 360 Internet security above 360 Total Security. It's a lot faster and lighter for on my system. I also asked the question about the Google Chrome extension trough the feedback option in 360 IS and hope I get an answer from them.
Same me. Not to mention 360IS is x64 native, while 360TS is x86.
Your point being?
Their flagship product weshi also installs on x86, and yet there is no degradation of protection.
@Gandalf_The_Grey I am working on getting you 360 Security extension, will post link here, thanks for your patience.
I am unable to do anything at this time, even installed older version from filehippo, for some reason only firefox extension is available. I am sorry. Do let me know if Qihoo guys reply to you, if not, I will escalate it on their G+ page.
I see both products are being develop, what is the difference between both? why they keep 2 similar products?
Long story short, Qihoo was convinced that some people like simplicity and "pure" antivirus product, without all bells and whistles.
Internet Security: Qihoo av's + Bitdedender + Sandbox
Total Security: QAv's + Bitdefender + Avira + Sandbox + Cleaner + Optimizer + System Patcher
Total is now a flagship product, while IS will be supported due to popular demand.
Thanks GakunGak. I also can only find the Firefox extension. Unfortunately I have not received an answer from Qihoo yet.
Does IS still have the Bitdefender signature/ update lag?
I see they are planning a firewall; will it be for all products?
Or will it be something like: Internet Security-AV only, Total Security-AV plus FW
